meaningful action and all but guarantee that the next atrocity is only a news cycle away. the media calls semiautomatic firearms machine guns. they claim these civilian semiautomatic firearms are used by the military. they tell us that the 223 round is one of the most powerful rifle calibers when all of these claims are factually untrue. they don't know what they're talking about. worse, they perpetuate the dangerous notion that one more gun ban or one more law imposed on peaceable, lawful people will protect us where 20,000 other laws have failed. as brave and heroic and as self-sacrificing as those teachers were in those classrooms and as prompt and professional and well-trained as those police were when they responded, they were unable, through no fault of their own, unable to stop it. as parents we do everything we can to keep our children safe. it's now time for us to assume responsibility for our schools. the only way, the only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of absolute protection. the only thing that stops a bad guy w
. the president is calling for, quote, meaningful action on guns. many democrats are calling for strict new gun control laws. of course the assault weapons ban expired in 2004. there is some talk that maybe, maybe bringing that back would be a foot. the effect of what you saw in is an plan and oakland was different elsewhere. for instance, like arizona. some of the gun buyers in arizona became very afraid actually that this new national conversation, particularly my -- what happened this beautiful town, could make it very difficult all of a sudden to get certain kinds of guns. egg i egging. >> reporter: columbine, virginia tech, tucson, movie theater in colorado, sikh temple in wisconsin, oregon shopping mall. even with those mass shootings, it has become easier for most americans to carry a gun, own an assault rifle, or use high capacity magazines. in the aftermath of connecticut, voices, most notably from tearful president obama, are calling for tighter gun control. you won't hear them in a california gun show held the day after the connecticut massacre. >> everybody is in a panic. i have nev

at the earliest, that would be on friday. but, you know, the action really is now going to begin in the senate. there isn't that much of a rush for the house to come back. and when i say action, even that is a question mark. whether there will be action. i was talking to a democratic source who said right now what they had to figure out, victor, is whether or not harry reid working with the white house on this can get enough votes from republicans to cross party lines for even a scaled back measure, which the president laid out in general on friday, would just be to keep americans' taxes where they are for those making $250,000 or less. and to do a couple of other things, unemployment benefits, maybe, maybe extend the estate tax cut, which is -- which is also going to run out, but, again, they're not even -- the senator won't even consider doing this, i'm told, unless he's sure they'll get through the senate and the house because politically they don't think there is any reason for congress to take votes that are just going to fail. also, they that i it will be bad for the markets, even worse

this response to call for more legislative action on gun control. >> they want to focus on the debate on new laws and new prohibitions and i'm saying that is the wrong debate. that is their solution. i believe a better solution is school safety initiatives. one of those options being an armed presence that we have in one-third of the schools. >> seems pretty likely they are going to oppose any legislative agenda, that looks like stricter gun laws. what are the chances of congress actually passing anything new in gun legislation? >> my guess is they will eventually pass something but anyone looking for quick action doesn't understand the dynamics of the gun debate remain basically the same. i do think there has been movement toward more gun restriction. gallup did a poll recently and asked how effective they thought certain approaches would be. over 50%, 53% said increasing security at schools and at the bottom of the list, under 50%, more restrictive gun control t is not, at this moment, a certainty that gun control will pass. it might pass as part of a who will lick thing. again, they are p

obligations to take action. again, we don't know what the president really means by that. is it some sort of political action. but, you know, in these speeches, the president is very good, anderson, about finding moments of heroism to talk about resilience and the american spirit and moments that sort of connect us to what's good about our spirit. and so that we find something positive in all of this. >> and there are certainly many moments that we know of already from what happened in that school on that day, teachers like victoria soto who essentially seemed to have sacrificed her life in order to protect her students, telling the gunman that the students were not in the classroom when she had hidden them. and i have talked to teachers who were, you know, literally -- they knew something was going on, didn't know what it was, and they sat their kids down, got them in the corner and read to them all during the shooting and just trying to keep their kids calm and keep them -- their minds diverted until a s.w.a.t. team arrived. >> that's why it's just such a chilling story, a chilling expe

to this horrific tragedy, but let's translate into action. and the action depends on facts. why do we have 15 times as much gun homicide as the rest of the world? what can we do about it? what can we learn from other countries that have dealt with some of these issues? why do countries like japan have these extraordinarily low rates of gun home skpooicide and gun ? if we can come up with something sensible -- and frankly, if has to be more far reaching. even the legislation proposed by dianne feinstein, though a step forward, it has 900 exceptions on the assault ban. 900 separate exceptions. how can something like that be enough, given the kind of tragedy we've just seen? >> and fareed, finally, i want to read this quote from neil mcdonald, a senior washington correspondent for cbc news off the canada. yet another national discussion about guns is under way, and it's so anti-rational, so politically cowardly, so unbearably stupid, that you have to wonder how a nation that has enlightened the world in so many other ways could wallow in this kind of discussion. does this target the united states' ima
. hagel said military action is not a viable, feasible, responsible action. president obama. for secretary of defense, chuck hagel is not a responsible option. >> that's from the emergency committee for israel, pro israeli group, of course. i want you to listen also to what senator joe lieberman, an independent and another very prominent republican senator from hagel's own party had to say about him over the weekend. >> i would have some really serious questions to ask him. not just about israel, but to me, the most significant foreign policy challenge for president obama and our country and the world in the next year or two is iran and its nuclear weapons program. chuck hagel has had some very outlying votes on that. >> i don't think he's going to get republican votes. i like chuck, but his positions, i didn't really quite frankly nomo all know all of them. >> senator lindsey graham, very prominent senator, already some of hagel's own republican party coming up against him. >> we'll see if this campaign against him is effective enough, i guess, barbara, in order for this nomination not to

through the actions by congress. i personally believes the a mistake. i certainly am -- being a former state official of texas, certainly believe in the rights of the states to make these kind of decisions for their own people. but i -- i -- here we do have -- a field you can argue has been preempted by the federal government, regulatory scheme that has been in place important decades. we have -- the dea whose sole job is to go after these kinds of drugs. and so -- i think this is an issue that's ultimately going find its way to the supreme court and there are various options that the u.s. government can take. i think this is -- this does present some serious challenges for the federal government. i think that's the reason why you have yet to hear what the department of justice is going to do. obviously, i -- my understanding is that under the regulatory scheme there in washington state, they have a year to put in place a regulation with respect to licensing and taxing of these kinds of sales and i think that what the department of justice is doing is evaluating what is the best way, w
's what her friends said. tonight they talked about the heroic actions that she took in her classroom when the gunman burst through the door, how she rushed the kids into a closet to try and save them and then of course the gunman took her life. as we were out here tonight with her sisters and her brother, her cousins and all of her friends, and doing what they can to remember her, i spoke to one young woman, a friend of soto's for many, many years. just listen to how she struggled to talk about how she will remember her. >> she was always at the house smiling. she drove us to cheerleading practices a couple of times. i'm also a teacher and i can't even imagine going through what she went through. i think her putting herself out there -- she's just an angel and she just went straight into heaven. there's no doubt about that. >> don, the reason why soto's family decided to hold this vigil tonight, the reason why they showed up and gave us pictures, pictures by the way that soto's mother picked out because they were her favorite pictures. the reason why they did all this is because they did
, no one plan of action, that everyone agrees, we don't want a repeat of what happened in newtown, connecticut. or milwaukee, wisconsin. or aurora, colorado. and those are just three from this past year. there are others since january, and, of course, many before that. so what? we just brace for the next one, the next time? where will that be? will it be minneapolis? new orleans, will it be your city? sure, we're angry, we're hurt, we're frustrated, but i think most of us believe what the president said at the memorial for the teachers and babies as the massacre in newtown, connecticut. >> we can't tolerate this anymore. these tragedies must end. and to end them, we must change. we will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true. no single law, no set of laws, can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. but that can't be an excuse for inaction. surely, we can do better than this. >> so tonight, we want to do better. let's look for better. and let's start with two men who know all about guns. lou palombo,

to make us a safer america? i don't think. >> so >> president obama's promising to take some action. right now it's unclear what he is going to do but the pressure certainly will mount in the coming days, weeks and months. as the people here in newtown try to come to terms with their grief, can religion provide comfort? a bible expert will show us what religious scripture has to offer. yo, give it up, dude! up high! ok. don't you have any usefull apps on that thing? who do you think i am, quicken loans? ♪ at quicken loans, our amazingly useful mortgage calculator app allows you to quickly calculate your mortgage payment based on today's incredibly low interest rates... right from your iphone or android smartphone. one more way quicken loans is engineered to amaze. ♪ i get congested. but now, with zyrtec-d®, i have the proven allergy relief of zyrtec®, plus a powerful decongestant. zyrtec-d® lets me breath freer, so i can love the air.

for action shortly. we don't want to focus on the killer. for the last several days we haven't said his name. i don't want history to remember him. we and the history want people to remember the teachers and the children and those whose lives have been so unfortunately taken. people with hopes and with dreams and with stories. even though 20 of those stories had only just begun. we're learning more about their lives from parents and friends and local and national papers and local blogs. there was a vigil in aurora, colorado, every time a victim was read the crowd said we will remember. i thought i'd take time to remember you each of the names of every child and every grown up and tell you what question about their lives. charlotte bacon was six years old. she was wearing a new pink dress and boots and holiday outfit. she begged her mom to wear it to school that day. her big brother was also at school that day. we're told he made it to safely. her uncle said she could light up a room. we'll also remember daniel barden, 7 years old. he was a budding athlete. he swam, played soccer, was missing
they think needs to be done is to get senate leader mcconnell to agree not to filibuster any action in the senate and then get speaker boehner to agree to put a bill forward on the house floor for a vote. if those two pieces happen, then they feel like there could be something done before new year's. so it's sort of con joeling mitch mcconnell to agree to those actions on those parts. if the president can get that done, we don't have much time left for the rest of the pieces to fall into place. >> jessica, i'm sure you saw harry reid on the floor there today really going after speaker boehner, which is just more and more of the blame game. can anything get done when all they are doing is fighting and blaming each other? >> for the longest time, we thought this is a lot for the last few weeks of public posturing. behind the scenes, they must have a secret deal worked out, but in the end they will come out with a deal to get this done before new year's. but it hasn't turned out that way, has it? so it's not surprising there's an enormous amount of partisanship given each side wants to
he's not nominated. >> president obama says all options are on the table. hagel says military action is not a feasible option. president obama for secretary of defense chuck hagel is not a responsible option. >> but if the white house was thinking of nominating hagel because he was a republican, an independent, it would bring some bipartisan support to a second obama administration, over the weekend a very prominent independent voice offered their thoughts. have a listen. >> i would have some really serious questions to ask him. not just about israel, but to me, the most significant f a policy challenge for president obama and our country and the world in the next year or two is iran. and its nuclear weapons program. chuck hagel had had outlying votes on that. >> i don't think he'll get many republican votes. i like chuck, but his positions i didn't know all of them, are out of the mainstream and well to the left of the president. >> so this so-called hagel nomination that hasn't even happened yet, it's at least going to sit until well after the new year. no indication at this point
action. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr interviewed one of the moms whose child was alle allegedly mistreated. >> all along this first week when we were being given peace meal information, denied access to videotapes, we were being asked if we wanted to seek medical care for our child. for what, obviously. we wanted to understand and see with our own eyes since that evidence was available. >> barbara starr joins me now from washington. good morning, great to see you. when a terrible story. curious to know, how was this able to go on for so long with nobody blowing the whistle on it? >> this is really the question. let's start with the point that this young mother doesn't want her face shown because she doesn't want her children identified. one is the subject of abuse. she doesn't want her husband to be subject to retaliation. that's the climate we're talking about here. the actual abuse, the allegations, all happened back in september. but that phone call from president obama didn't come until december 14th because the leadership at the pentagon didn't know anything about
for more action, it's pressuring, getting people to buy guns and buy weapons now before a possible crackdown can happen and you could also see pressuring stocks and companies that make the guns like sit ami wesson, shares tumbled monday and pointing to a lower open today. >>alson kosc kosik on the busin side of this today. >>> today we are billions closer to reaching a deal. president obama tufrd compromise on boehner's idea to raise taxes on people making $1 million or more a year. the president proposed raising taxes on family making more than $250,000 a year. dan lothian is at the white house. this is good, right? >> reporter: well it's certainly significant because as you pointed out the president for quite some time had been campaigning on the issue saying taxes had to go up on house holds making more than $250,000 during these negotiations over the last several weeks, both the president and other aids here at the white house had been insisting there would be no deal unless taxes went up on those making more than 250,000 and now the president according to source sources laying
. in the coming days, jovan belcher's actions and their possible connection to football will be analyzed. who knows. but here, wrote jason whitlock, is what i believe. if jovan belcher didn't possess a gun, he and kasandra perkins would both be alive today. >> reporter: you know, we live in a social media world. so as you can imagine, the twittersphere was all abuzz last night. reaction very swift. some agreeing with bob costas. others very frustrate. here's a tweet from a very frustrated viewer saying guns don't kill people, people kill people. keep that liberal crap off the nfl aeir waves. a second tweet coming in from chris says bob costas just spoke some truth and real profound stuff on the sunday night football halftime show. to be fair, carol, bob costas for years has always given his opinion. it's typically on sports. he's made a lot of money doing that. he's had a really successful career doing that. last night, though, he definitely crossed over into a very politically charged topic that a lot of people have an opinion on. carol? >> you've got that right. joe carter, reporting live f

's palace. we'll have a live report from cairo. but, first, u.s. military plans about possible action against syria are changing. senior pentagon officials tell cnn the syrian government could be escalating the civil war. there are new concerns the assad regime is preparing to use chemical weapons. let's get to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. barbara, how does this change the u.s. military's syria plan? are we talking u.s. troops, boots on the ground? >> well, not at this point, clearly, deb. but what we do know is that u.s. officials tell us that they are updating some of the military options for action against syria's chemical weapons capability, why are they doing this? of course, we chatted about this in the last several days. officials say they do have the intelligence now that syria has filled aerial bombs with deadly sarin gas. haven't moved it to airplanes yet, but this is very concerning because that, of course, would be the next step. so once you have the deadly bombs, the u.s. has to look at what the options could be, what they might want to target to essentially
together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics. this evening michelle and i will do what i know every parent in america will do, which is hug our children a little tighter, and we'll tell them that we love them, and we'll remind each other how deeply we love one another. but there are families in connecticut who cannot do that tonight and they need all of us right now. in the hard days to come, the community needs us to be at our best as americans, and i will do everything in my power as president to help. because while nothing can fill the space of a lost child or loved one, all of us can extend the hand to those in need, to remind them that we are there for them, that we are praying for them, that the love they felt for those they lost endures not just in their memories, but also in ours. may god bless the memory of the victims and in the words of scripture, heal the broken-hearted and bind up their wounds. >> very, very emotional moment for the president of the united states. dare i say for all of america. much of the world rig
else in helping to stop bullying. and then of course meaningful action about gun violence, rules and we just do not believe that assault rifles should be around, and that we should have definite background checks, a waiting period, and even amnesty days, so americans could turn in assault rifles, no questions asked. >> i'm just reading a statement here from the national education association, in fact, two education groups will come out later today and condemn this tragedy. i'm going to read part of it. "guns have no place in our schools, period. we must be doing everything we can to reduce the possibility of gunfire in schools and concentrate on ways to keep all guns off school property and ensure the safety of our children and school employees." i want to read another part, this is more interesting. it also says that "if more guns were in the schools, if teachers were armed it would turn our educators into objects of fear and actually increase the danger in our schools." i was most interested in turning our educators into objects of fear. so if teachers were armed, and let's say you ke
